Default [VIDEO] Sheriff’s Use of Seized Corvette ZR1 Under Fire

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Department in Atlanta, Georgia is under fire from some citizens for keeping a confiscated Corvette ZR1 that it is using for promotional and educational purposes.

Great, I think it just sends the message to young people that if you sell drugs, you can afford a ZR-1, just don't get caught.

sounds like that Sheriff just got his dream car, a FREE ZR1 to drive ... but I m sure that had nothing to do with the decision...it was all about the kids,right?

I'm calling B.S. on this story. What drug dealer would use a car like a vette to transport drugs! One thing that we all should've learned by now, is never just assume the "Official" story is true.
A little scrutiny is definitely called for here imho.

This also continues the practice of local/state/fed govts confiscating private property. It's always ok until it's your turn... ask those who are the victims of Eminent domain... ask those who had their gold confiscated in Apr 1933.

When you applaud bad things happening to others, It'll eventually happen to you. Observe the current state of politics and the executive orders and laws that have been passed in the dark.

I also agree with fishslayer,... do you really think it's all about the kids?? If it were, then the cops would be protesting the drug laws to begin with, then perhaps they'd have the guts to tell the politicians to stop bringing and allowing the stuff in the country in the first place.
